Dr. Allen Carl is internationally renowned for innovative surgical treatment and research of spine diseases and disorders in adults and children. He treats more scoliosis patients than any other surgeon in the region. His other interests include spine trauma, spinal cord injury, spine deformity, disc herniation, and degenerative and arthritic diseases of the spine.

Locally, he pioneered a minimally invasive treatment for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis called X-STOP, replacing conventional surgery with a 45-minute procedure resulting in immediate relief from severe sciatic pain. Dr. Carl's numerous clinical and basic science research efforts are far-reaching in their benefit to patients with spinal problems: I take full advantage of this knowledge base, which eventually translates into better outcomes for my patients.
